Special Collections holds a variety of materials relating to the history of The Claremont Colleges and its affiliates. Many resources can be found in Library Search, the Online Archive of California (OAC), and Archives at TCC (ASpace). The subject files complement these resources.
A spreadsheet of subjects relating to all seven Claremont Colleges institutions and affiliated institutions. This ever-growing collection of documents, flyers, newspaper clippings, and more is organized at the folder-level.
Open the spreadsheet to browse tabs arranged by institution.
Use CTRL+F to search individual tabs or change your search to include the entire spreadsheet.
Since this is a folder-level collection, not item-level, you may need to think in terms of broad categories (e.g., if you're looking for a particular student event, you might look within folders labeled student activities).
If you find something of interest, place a request in your Special Collections Account with the folder title and the drawer number.
